Picture posts

Help us monitor our green infrastructure and ponds by taking photos at our Picture Posts!

Ten Picture Posts are installed around Roger Williams Park. Some of them overlook green infrastructure installations to document changes to vegetation and sedimentation over time. This information helps us determine how often the structures need to be maintained. Other posts are installed near ponds known to be affected by algal blooms in order to visually assess their timing and extent. Find the locations of Picture Posts within Roger Williams Park in the map below.

To participate:

  1. Create a profile on the Picture Post website.

  2. Locate a Picture Post from the map above or the tour below.

  3. Take 9 photos in each cardinal direction (also facing up) at the post. Cardinal directions are labeled on each post for your convenience.

  4. Upload to the website each photo in the proper cardinal direction for the post you visited.

  5. Repeat at other posts or the same post over time.
